On 20 March 2020 we advised members that all tournaments were suspended, but that Clubs could continue to run chukkas and games within their local zone/community provided they were carried out in accordance with the Commonwealth Department of Health COVID-19 guidelines.
However, things have moved rapidly and as outlined by the Prime Minister on Tuesday night, in an effort to curb the spread of the coronavirus, new strict directives have been issued by the National Cabinet re social distancing. As a result, from midnight last night all social sporting based activities are prohibited. In light of these developments, APF has reassessed its position and regrettably requests that State Associations advise their Clubs that all polo activities should be suspended immediately until further notice. The decision to suspend these activities is unfortunate, but considered necessary in the best interests of our sport and the Australian community.
We will continue to monitor the situation as it unfolds and keep you up to date as new information comes to hand.
